@TheDayman Karen Strassman would be a perfect fit to voice Emma

VC thoughts update

Susan Silo is my favorite here. She has a great delivery and a really awesome voice to boot. I also liked how seductive she sounded on that first line in the clip.

Tracey Moore also sounds good in the role. I like her devious tone and her delivery is quite great.

Kari Wahlgren is one of the standouts from WatXM. I really like the accent and she sounds pretty seductive as well.

Erica Schroeder also sounds pretty good. I like her delivery and her voice is kinda soothing to listen to.

Grey DeLisle also sounds pretty good.

The others don't leave a big impression on me.

1. Kari wahlgren was great as Emma in Wolverine and the X-Men especially considering how important her role was in the later episodes in the series in which she nailed

2. Ali Hillis was great in the X-Men Anime she definitely gave a real charm in that series

3. Erica Schroeder was really good in Astonishing X-Men would like to hear her reprise the role one day and polish it because she shows potential

Ah yes. One of my Favourite X Men characters. Here's my top 5 favourite voices:
5. Erica Schroeder
4. Bobby Holiday
3. Lara Gilchrist
2. Ali Hillis
1. Kari Wahlgren
Possible VA Casting choice: Rosamund Pike would be perfect for the role, using either a slight British accent (or a neutral one). Having replayed Mass Effect 2 recently, I also think think Natalia Ciguliuti (Morinth's VA) would be a very fitting voice for Emma as well.

Not sure if it's just me, but something about Doerksen's voice reminds me of Grey Delisle-Griffin

I like Heather Doerksen but the voice she used would sound SO much better with an English accent. I love Kari as Emma, but it'd be cool to hear a deeper sounding English Emma.

I definitely love Kari Wahlgren's Emma Frost best. Her English accent is fantastic (I know she's not English but it just adds a lot to the character) AND She just strikes a great balance of being intelligent, sexy, alluring, mysterious and even sympathetic. I thought Kari's performance as Emma was one of the major standouts in Wolverine and the X-Men, especially since I was never really that fond of the show, however I did manage to like Emma Frost and Kari's performance, she just resonated with me.

Erica Schroeder is a close second, while I find her performance a bit wooden at times but she has a fantastic voice for Emma.

Lara Gilchrist is a solid replacement for Erica. Her performance is a lot stronger but I find her voice not as memorable as Erica's.

Bobby Holiday sounds very alluring and mature, but she sounds maybe too mature for Emma.

Ali Hillis has an awesome voice but I'm not really fond of her Emma, it's a bit dry sounding and I really wish they just had Kari reprise in the X-Men anime dub.

Susan Silo sounds way too witchy for this White Queen but it works for the way she was depicted in her earlier appearances.

Grey DeLisle-Griffin could make for an amazing Emma Frost, under better direction and in better materials.

Mela Lee, while it's nice to see her do something a bit different than she usually does, she sounds a bit too unnatural.

I definitely am giving my vote to Kari Wahlgren. Between Emma Frost, The Enchantress, Susan Storm and Gwen Stacy. Kari will someday voice every blonde hair girl in the Marvel Universe.

BONUS: Since she once played Emma Frost in the live-action Generation X TV Movie, I wouldn't mind if Fionla Hughes someday voiced Emma. I can also see Kath Soucie and Lydia Mackay being great as Emma too.

Heather Doersken is a bit disappointing in the role.

Which is a shame since I think she is an actress who could totally nail Emma but she needs to be directed differently maybe going for the same approach Kari Wahlgren did?

1-: Kari Wahlgren: Pitch perfect, the accent is perfect and she got Emma's personality down to a tee.
2-:Bobby Holiday: Captured Emma's wise and sexy side well.
3-:Erica Schroeder: Made Emma sound cold and heartless, but come on, that's one of the reasons she's known as the White Queen. :D
4-:Lara Gilchrist: Fairly enjoyable and easy on the ears, but it's a bit of a step down from Erica, as Lara sounds a tad bit too young for Emma IMO.
5-:Ali Hillis: She made Emma sound lovely, and it's one of the most likeable depictions of the character, but Ali was a little too soft here.
6-: Susan Silo and Mela Lee: So hammy they could make a triple Bacon deluxe burger, but their corny and over the top acting has some level of enjoyment for me.
7-: Grey DeLisle: Look, I know you were reduced to SHSO of all things, but couldn't you have just used your Psylocke voice Grey?

Give Bobby an accent and she's perfect. I'm voting for her, but Kahri Wahlgren is very close.

Kari and Ali are the only performances I'm familiar with. I thought they both did an excellent job, but I'm gonna go with Kari as the superior (although I prefer Emma's characterisation in the anime to what I've seen of her anywhere else).

I'd hate to say it but Grey is the weakest, at least with the others there's something interesting or rememberable but Grey is just generic

Susan Silo - Not that good, but OK. A little too hokey.
Mela Lee - Too raspy.
Bobby Holiday - Pretty good.
Kari Wahlgren - Perfect.
Erica Schroeder - Pretty good as well.
Ali Hillis - Kinda miss the accent, but pretty good.
Grey DeLisle - The material is a bit damning, but if she was given better material, and if she used a accent, she might of been just as good as Kari.
Lara Gilchrist - OK
said at 8:54 PM on Mon Mar 18 2013
It isn't 100% known if Emma actually has a British accent. Since Kari is the only one to explore this and do a brilliant job, I have to hand it to her.

@ChloeKitten It's think it's been stated before that she sports a fake british accent.

@SmartyBoyboy They redubbed all the dialogue for the game's re-release (with only two VAs: Kyle Hebert and Mela Lee), but kept in the original Engrish-ridden script for the camp value.

I love how the new English version for the 1992 X-Men game keep the really bad script of the old one! XD I guess Kari would be my pic, but none of them are bad at all.

I'm going with Kari. Ali sounds fantastic as Emma, she sounds so much like Jennifer Hale sometimes though. Erica's was ok, but her accent kept going in and out during the whole series.
